Mr GORTON - In reply to the last part of the question which I remember better than the first part, because it was rather long - yes, I would assure the House that the "Government does not regard the instructions given to some who engage in Moratorium marches and other demonstrations in effect to carry weapons with them as being something which applies to all those who engage in such demonstrations or whatever it might be. The Government, however - I am not sure that the Opposition agrees with this - does say that some of those engaged in these demonstrations do carry these types of weapons and do carry them under 1 est ruction and are prepared to use them.

The other part of the question referred to the taking of films of demonstrations. I do not believe that anybody's rights to natural justice or that anybody's rights of any kind are infringed by the fact that a photograph is taken of him and if, in fact, at some later stage there should be a question of fact arise I see no reason why that photograph should not be produced to decide what the actual facts were.
